    To drive the point home

    I am wondering if my sentence sounds natural. Would you please correct my mistakes?

    The manager threatened Anna with dismissal, and to drive the point home, pounded his fist on the table.

    The manager threatened Anna with dismissal (no comma here) and, to drive the point home, pounded his fist on the table.
    Moving the comma results in a grammatical sentence. See above.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
